This event will focus on the systems of criminal punishments enacted by the English colonists and Powhatan Indians. The English crimes and punishments will be based off of the 1612 Laws Divine, Moral, and Martial as well as new Virginia laws after martial law ends by 1617 – especially those for women, children, and families. The Powhatan crime and punishments are based off of written English accounts and native traditions. Visitors have the opportunity to be participants in both trials and punishments! This event is great for all ages 7+.
Admission: $8 Adults, $6 children aged 3-12
